Oh Jeph; a little bit crazy with your writing, but you've had some gems with TV.

I want to adopt him :)

Great interview.  Haven't seen any animated stuff from Marvel but I keep an eye out.

He is so nice.
You know what be great another 
FF series, another X-Men series, and a Agents of Atlas series.

So what's after Ultimate X?

Posted by Fantasgasmic

Is it bad that after finding out he was involved with Heroes, I lost a fair amount of respect for Loeb?

I like Jeph. I really do.

I remember Invincible Iron Man #154 XD
I used to own it. It had something to do with the Unicorn or something. Unfortunately i sold it in a garage sale a while back.

@Fantasgasmic: Yeah but the show really went downhill after he was gone. The show was too expensive and just lost what it originally set out to be.

Really?  Why?  I mean, I didn't like Heroes but knowing he was involved didn't bother me.  After all, he's been involved in a lot of TV shows before Heroes.

@xerox-kitty: Because I really loved Long Halloween, and Dark VIctory, and When in Rome, and Spiderman: Blue. Because I thought his writing and storytelling were great and I found that to be some of the worst parts about Heroes. There were a lot of episodes where absolutely nothing happened, and it seemed to just be ripping off X-men plotlines. Granted I'm not sure what, exactly, his role was on the show, but he mentioned being in the writers' room and so I'm gonna put some of the blame for the terrible writing on him.

He was involved with Commando, that cancels out the Heroes thing.

I have a love/hate relationship with the guy.   I like his thinking his approach, and his Batman work, but I hate hate hate his Ultimates work.

Haha video as promised!  Now that's what I called service! 
 
I like his outlook/mission statement concerning the TV, nice to know he's not gonna abandon fans.  Also he's looks cuddly like a teddy bear. Always a bonus.

I could honestly listen to Jeph Loeb for hours.

I like a lot of his writing.  His Batman work some of my favorites.  I did enjoy his Ultimates vol. 3 run (I might be the only one out there tho) I hated how he changed a lot of what Millar did in terms of making some of the Ultimate charaters their own characters.  I'm not a Thor fan til Millar made him his own, but Loeb went and made him way to much like the 616 version.  Iron Man doesn't look like Ultimate Iron Man anymore he looks like 616 Iron Man.  He even contradicted himself a few times like he didn't even read Millars Ultimates run, which was just brilliant.  Not sure to what to expect on him being charge of television.  He doesn't look like the kind of guy goes home and watches any animation.  Hero's started out good then it repeated itself to much.  Only time will tell.

One or 2 good stories aside everything he's written is crap.

Hopefully he stays at the TV stuff ... because writing for Marvel isn't the best thing he ever did. Most of his Marvel stories reeeally sucks, he has not the slightest feeling of continuity and with Ultimates 3 and then Ultimatum he literally destroyed a whole superhero universe and a great book that had been one of the best before he laid his hands on it.
So please stay in TV business!

warner brothers is kicking their ass when it comes to animated. why? warner brothers and DC has been in the game for almost half a century, they dominate the direct to dvd market, and, well? the block coming next year on cartoon network is going to put disney to shame.... days are numbered for marvel's tv life... tick. tock. tick. tock.

As long as you take care of him and feed him right, I'll sell you him for a dollar:

Why is it always about taking sides and groups with fanboys...

Anyway, I'm personally more of a DC fan, but I've been loving Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes so far :D
I kinda fear what Ultimate Spider-man will be like, if it will be anything like its namesake and if scrapping Spectacular was that a good idea..
At least there's some "names" behind it....

He's a nice guy. I'll buy him a beer and BS with him, hell I'll even send him a friend request on xbox live but this interview still does make me want to buy anything of this guy is involved in.

 

What I have read from this guy write just disppoints me. Especially from what he did in the Ultimate Universe is just unforgivable. A great interview doesn't change the crap writing of Ulitmates 3 and Ultimatum.

Hopefully his TV stuff is good, his ideas for the live action shows are not thrilling me. Another Hulk show? Just give us a incredible Hulk 2 movie! And hate that it will have nothing to do with the movies, terrible idea, if you are doing live action tv shows they should be part of the marvel cinematic universe!

Posted by Tainted-Cell

Half my (obviously small) collection of DC trade is Jeph Loeb. I have all of his collaborations with Tim Sale, even the in-and-out-of-print Challengers of the Unknown. That said, he should stick to Batman. Hush is my favorite modern age story arc, but lately, I think he's just gotten far too comfortable with everything else.

Posted by InnerVenom123

You're talking to the man who killed an entire universe.

Yeah that's my opinion on it as well. The Incredible Hulk is one of my favorite hero movies but the idea of another tv show worries me.

Listening to him is really enlightening about the process of making a hit tv show. I hope Marvel can pull out some hit shows but with Wonder Woman getting probably canned, I'm not sure how ready the audience is for Superhero TV shows.

Aw, he's my fan! You are darningly lucky to meet him! Wow.
